ACE-NTDs Virtual Seminar Series
In July 2021, ACE-NTDs launched its virtual seminar series with ‘Mathematical models: Important tools for the control and elimination of NTDs’. Our speakers, Dr Luc Coffeng, Ms Nefel Tellioğlu and Dr Trish Campbell led us through case studies showcasing how modelling can be used to inform control strategies for neglected tropical diseases. A panel discussion, with a mix of modellers and people who work with modellers, then considered how modelling could be used to add value to research conducted by ACE-NTDs team members. We hope that the seminar inspired people to look for ways to integrate modelling into their work!
